Mount Alexander Shire Council will replace two bridges on Campbells Creek – Fryers Road, with works due to begin later this year.

The two bridges are located just north and south of Hawkins Road near Campbells Creek Recreation Reserve.

“More than 800 vehicles use this road each day and both bridges have 20 tonne load limits,” said Jess Howard, Director Infrastructure and Development, Mount Alexander Shire Council.

“The bridges are at the end of their useful life and will be replaced with modern structures that comply with today’s standards,” said Ms Howard.

The new bridges will reduce the risk of flooding by allowing a greater flow of water underneath. Rock beaching will be added along the waterways to reduce erosion.

The lifespan of the new bridges is expected to be 80 to 100 years.

Council will remove the 20 tonne load limit once the bridges are constructed.

Access from Hawkins Road will be maintained at all times throughout construction and the works will be planned to minimise the impact on traffic. More information will be available closer to the start of the works, including letters to neighbouring properties.

The project is expected to be completed by May 2021, weather permitting.

A contract for design and construction of the bridges is currently out for tender.

For more information on this project contact Graeme Barnes, Project Officer, on 5471 1700 or visit www.mountalexander.vic.gov.au/CapitalWorks.
